Kendrick Lamar has a heavy-hitting new video for "Poetic Justice," the Drake-assisted cut off the Compton MC's 2012 LP, good kid, m.A.A.d city. The gorgeous clip, much of it in slow motion, opens with Kendrick and a crush finding each other amid a huge crowd – but romance turns to tragedy with the gunfire of a jealous third party. Drake literally phones in his verse from a hotel room far away, but his call goes unanswered as the couple lays on the street. Kendrick delivers his final verse from a sparse, white room as an ambulance arrives to take the two away, the video's final shot a flirtatious flashback that fades to black.
